Description

Elementary STEM Units include cross-curricular activities and experiments that teach concepts in math, science, technology, and language arts. In today’s classroom, flexibility is key, and these STEM Units were created to be easily set up and adaptable.

Cantilever Structures is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students work in teams of two to four to learn about cantilever structures. Students use a crank-and-pulley system, learn construction skills, and, for their challenge, build a crane.

This unit comes with a unit guide, teacher notes, scope and sequence, teacher’s guide, student pages, assessments, and all the materials needed for a class of 24 students.

Have a class of more than 24 students? No problem! Four-student add-on packages are available.

Note: If purchasing all Grades 3-5 Structures units, it is recommended that they be completed sequentially: Bridge Structures, Cantilever Structures, Suspension Structures, and then Arch Structures. The Structures Engineering Challenges Unit can be completed in a stand-alone manner.
